The Fallen by Claire Delacroix

Science Fiction/Dark Fantasy Romance

This is the first time I have read a book by Claire Delacroix. Looking at a list of her previous books The Fallen is a change of pace for this author. Set in a post-nuclear pre-Apocalyptic time The Fallen is the story of Adam Montgomery (Munkar) and Lilia Desjardins. In the first chapter we meet Munkar, an angle, as he is undergoing the painful surgery to remove his wings and receive his human name, Adam Montgomery. He has volunteered to go to Earth on a mission to help humans. In chapter two Lilia Desjardins, a shade hunter, is introduced. She is going to Gotham, a radiation hot spot, to find out how her husband died. The book starts with a bang and does not slow down. This is a very well written and gripping tale filled with wonderful characters. The plot development and pacing kept me hooked from the first page. According to Claire Delacroix’s blog this is the first of a trilogy. I am looking forward to the next two. I gave The Fallen five thumbs up.
